Notes & Reviews:

Guitarist David Leisner, a featured Azica solo recording artist, commissioned "Facts of Life" from American composer David Del Tredici for this recording, and in addition delivers the world premiere recording of Osvaldo Golijov's "Fish Tale" with flutist Tara Helen O'Connor. David's arrangement of the JS Bach "Lute Suite" BWV 997, included here, was one of the inspirations for Mr. Del Tredici's "Facts of Life". Mr. Leisner is an extraordinarily versatile musician with a multi-faceted career as an electrifying performer, a distinguished composer and a master teacher. Recent appearances have taken him around the USA, Puerto Rico, Oceania, Europe, Japan and Mexico. He also serves as Artistic Director of the Guitar Plus series in New York, a series that features chamber music with guitar.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
Leisner performs with his expected excellence - intelligence, emotional intensity, virtuosic mastery. He worked closely with the composer to produce this exciting, fascinating work, and deserves our thanks.
